We are passionate entrepreneurs
Our passion for business is contagious. We are entrepreneurs and investors ourselves and like to share our experience and knowledge with customers and partners.
We go all the way
Advising and concepts are just the start. We do not give up easily, roll up our sleeves and execute for results.
We make it fit
Whether through advisory or workshops, in-person or via digital solutions, we adapt to needs and preferences.
We empower for long-term success
We empower entrepreneurs to build the capabilities to master their challenges and succeed long-term. We expect entrepreneurs and ourselves to take charge and ownership of a sustainable future - for business and beyond.
We believe in the power of collaboration
Our creativity and resourcefulness lies in forging connections (which others might not be able to see, be they conceptually or in the form of cooperations) which allow entrepreneurs to overcome challenges.
We live and expect diversity
Openness, fairness, and a human touch. Our team brings different perspectives to our work. We strive to communicate at eye level and openly, encouraging feedback and fair behaviour.
